Three Essential Las Vegas Podcasts
If you love Las Vegas as much as we do, you’re always looking for news, skinny, scoop, the inside track, the edge, the low-down, the frothy oyster. (We just make that last one up.)
If you’re not listening to Las Vegas podcasts, you might be missing out on some of the best, and certainly some of the most entertaining, free Sin City resources around.
Here are three Las Vegas podcasts we can’t live without, in no particular order.
The Vegas Gang Podcast
Four Vegas experts mix it up in a free, bi-weekly podcast about Vegas, the gaming industry and whatever else springs to mind. The cast of characters include regulars Hunter Hillegas from RateVegas.com; Chuck Monster from VegasTripping.com, UNLV’s Dave Schwartz and Jeff Simpson. Great interviews, lots of opinions, and humor, too (big plus with us). Visit the official site to find out more.
Five Hundy by Midnight
Charming hosts Tim Dressen and Michele Dressen adore Las Vegas, and their passion shows in their fun, informative podcasts. Catch up on all the latest Las Vegas news and lots more. This entertaining podcast has been around since 2005, and it’s always exciting to download the latest installment. Visit the official site.
The Strip Podcast
Podcasters and journalists Steve Friess (columnist for Las Vegas Weekly and other publications) and Miles Smith (executive producer for local TV station KVBC) hit all the right notes with celebrity interviews, tourist tips and Las Vegas trivia. These two have the greatest rapport, which makes their take on Vegas all the more enjoyable. Here’s the official site.
It’s worth noting the three aforementioned podcasts are all participants in the annual Podcast-a-Palooza gathering, the most recent of which took place at Flamingo Las Vegas. You can bet we won’t miss this fun event again.
“Pulse of Vegas blog,” you ask, “how can I listen to podcasts during my commute to work or while driving to Las Vegas?” Funny you should ask! There’s a cool gadget that plugs into your car’s lighter, then transmits the signal from your smartphone or iPod to your car’s radio. Podcast heaven. Check it out.
